I don‘t know where the problem is with mixing science fiction and fantasy. This was already done often in the past:
- Shadowrun takes place in a futuristic cyberpunk world in which the ‚old magic‘ came back.
- Buffy had with ‚Adam‘ a cyber-enhanced demon/vampire hybrid as the big bad in season 4
- A lot of superhero stories have a mix of sci-fi and fantasy (=> e.g. in the Marvel Cinematic Universe)
- The Wolfenstein games contain occult forces and cyber-enhanced supersoldiers
- ‚Sword and Planet‘ like Masters of the Universe
Honestly said: the High Fantasy standards as de facto established by Lord of the Rings 70 years ago became too dominant from my side of view.

Dec 19, 2021I‘ve always thought that CoK era Kamigawa takes place in present time of the Multiverse. But now it‘s seems that Neon Dynasty is doing this instead.Posted in: Magic Storyline
But: why does Tamiyo looks like she is from the CoK era?
Is this a plothole or is this retcon?

The idea that people cannot have opinions or criticisms about something they enjoy is asinine at best and stupid's second cousin at worst.
You can have an opinion, but it's still 7 pages discussing opinions about cardboards having gandalf on it and not random grey wizard. People are losing their minds way too much about this. Everybody needs to chill a bit, it's just a ******* game.
Maybe some people are afraid that this is the end of THEIR game for which they spend 50k and a kidney.

Yes. I want The Fonz as a legendary creature and his Jacket as an Equipment.
Feb 26, 2021Interesting question: will we get Hobbit as a new creature type or will they be Kithkin?Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Feb 26, 2021I play since 2004 and there were several ‚Magic is dead‘ moments:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
- Future Sight: Futureshifted card frames
- Lorwyn: Planewalkers
- Alara: Mythic rarity
- M10: new terms (cast, battlefield, exile)
- Innistrad: double face cards
- Ixalan: Pirates vs. Dinosaurs
- The Guildwatch as Avengers wannabes
- Secret Lair Drops
- Ikoria: Kaiju artworks
My love for the game survived them all.
But this could maybe the Jump the Shark moment of MtG.

Is it really working this way? I read it that the dragon always get the counter no matter if a card is exiled or not.

For those oldies out there like me.

Sometimes indestructible squirrels with prosthetic limbs simply toss Viking funeral ships at giants that crush the bones of humans, destroying the ship and killing the giant.
I mean, the flavor is pretty self-explanatory.
I don‘t get the vigilance aspect of a corpse.
